About Me

My Philosophy

I believe that every parent is responsible to oversee the education of their children. Whether evaluating portfolios, tutoring, or teaching classes, I always seek to support your family's choices.

My Biography

Bethany Barnosky is a master teacher, tutor, and educational consultant living in sunny Peterborough New Hampshire. As a college student, she set aside her interest in the aerospace industry in order to graduate from Keene State College and pursue her passion for teaching. While she did earn her blue belt in Sei Goshen Ryu Kempo Karate in 2011, she considers homeschooling her daughter to be her greatest accomplishment.

Bethany is a passionate learner and right-brained problem-solver who loves factoring polynomials, formulating proofs, and discovering the "hidden side of everything."

Portfolio Assessment

Portfolio Assessment

As a portfolio evaluator, my job is not to critique your homeschool programs, organizational skills, or schooling choices. I simply evaluate whether your portfolio shows that your student has fulfilled the educational requirements of the law.
